Re: Building a bowsprit
You can obtain very nice fir, sold as stair tread stock, almost anywhere around Silver Spring. Slice it edge wise down the middle and reverse the one side and epoxy it back together.....use three such pieces insuring that the grain is alternated and it will be as good as quarter sawn stock...better perhaps...make at least 6 laminations for the total thickness required.....then make your sprit.
